Markeaton Park

Markeaton Park is one of the most popular parks in the East Midlands, attracting more than one million visitors each year. The Park’s 207 acres offers something for everyone to enjoy, from the vibrant Mundy Play Centre to the many historic features waiting to be discovered.

Markeaton Park is undergoing a transformation. We have secured £2.5million from the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a £3.4million Markeaton Park Restoration Project that will restore and enhance the Park.
